It’s official. The Tennessee Court of Appeals has officially ruled that it would be unconstitutional to not recognize a same-sex marriage from out of state. In Borman v. Borman (https://www.tba.org/sites/default/files/bormanf_080415.pdf), a divorce matter, has now officially knocked out the Anti-Recognition laws in Tennessee, and allows the married couple to proceed with their divorce for a marriage which was performed in Iowa. The Anti-Recognition laws in Tennessee were one of the technical hurdles that still needed to be crossed after the Supreme Court Ruling to allow same-sex divorces. It’s about time!
